I've been working on making summer and beach themed cards lately, but with a family wedding coming up at the end of the month, I wanted to see if I could combine those themes into one card.
While a whimsical wedding card is not appropriate for everyone, the right couple would definitely appreciate it :)
I began with an aqua panel that was vertically the length of a standard A2 card, but an inch smaller across and embossed it using a bubble folder from Darice. I added it to a slightly larger piece of black cardstock and attached it to the base.
I stamped and die cut the To Have and To Hold Greeting, attached it using some dimensional tape, and went to work on the images.
I stamped the Happy Octopus twice on some grey cardstock and fussy cut them out. I knew I wanted to added some bubbles between them by way of punched hearts, but the animals themselves seemed plain otherwise, so I had to get creative. The bowtie was hand cut and added using a gem, and the veil was a scrap of lace, embellished with one fussy cut flower from the Four Flower Background.
Now that makes them look more like a bride and groom :)
You can find all of these stamps and more over at DRS Designs!
Best "fishes" everyone!
